Feder: “On July 18, 1994, a van loaded with explosives blew to smithereens the downtown stone and mortar building of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) in a matter of seconds, this time sending 85 innocent civilians to their deaths and injuring over 300...
The survivors, their families, the Jewish community, and the nation as a whole have yet to move beyond the ebb and flow of fear unleashed by the devastation, confusion and momentary hope induced by the ensuing events. Although the Argentine government publicly accused Iranian-backed Hezbollah of responsibility for both unprovoked attacks, it was not until 2006 that sufficient legal evidence was finally gathered for the government to be in a position to request that Interpol issue warrants for the arrest of the people allegedly responsible for the AMIA bombing.
As of today, neither these indicted individuals nor most of their local accessories to the crime have been brought to justice. Gustavo Perednik’s To Kill Without a Trace introduces readers to this vitally important chapter in the Holy war that is being waged in Latin America in the name of Islam against the West.
Written as a historical novel to ensure access to a wider audience, it recounts the events leading up to the bombing of the AMIA and beyond, exploring the social and political implications both for Argentina and the world. Never losing sight of the human dimension of the tragedy, Perednik’s lightly veiled fiction is accurately based on reported facts and original legal documents, put at the author’s disposal by none other than the chief investigator of the case, Argentina’s Prosecutor, Alberto Nisman.”
